Celebrity-Approved Gifts to Help You Finish Your Holiday Shopping

With literally millions of gift ideas at our fingertips these days, narrowing down the best of the best to give to your family and friends can be a daunting task – especially as the holidays quickly approach. Over the years, celebrities and influencers have curated their own holiday gift guides, in the hopes of helping you narrow down your options and find the perfect gift for each and every person on your list. To help make your gift shopping experience even easier, we’ve compiled some of the top celebrity-approved gift items that you can conveniently find at London Drugs! From Oprah Winfrey to Mariah Carey, here are the celebrity-approved gift ideas that will help you tick off the last few names on your holiday shopping list.

Oprah’s Picks

Oprah’s Favorite Things 2019 list is full of covetable items, expertly curated by Oprah and her team. This year, that includes the Ninja Foodi Cold & Hot Blender and Sony XB12 Extra Bass Portable Bluetooth Speaker, which you can both find at London Drugs! The Ninja Foodi brings the heat, with its new heating element that can boil in minutes to cook soups, simmer sauces and even melt cheese for fondue! Plus, it can still blend your favourite frozen drinks and smoothies with ease. The perfect gift for a foodie. Meanwhile, the Sony Extra Bass Speaker is a must-have for the music lover on your holiday shopping list. The speaker is waterproof, dustproof, rustproof and washable, meaning they can take their music with them pretty much anywhere. They’ll love the enhanced low-end tones, and the Li-ion battery that will last up to 16 hours.

Mariah Carey’s Pick

Mariah Carey is the queen of Christmas. After all, can you even think about Christmas without ‘All I want for Christmas is you’ popping into your head? This holiday season, Mariah is spreading Christmas cheer not only with her tunes, but with her hand-picked gift ideas too. Some truly unique items made her list, including the Arcade1Up Pac-Man Arcade Cabinet. These Arcade1Up games just launched at London Drugs this year, and they’ve already become a huge hit with customers! Enjoy the nostalgia of playing Pac-Man and Pac-Man Plus with this classic upright arcade cabinet. Gift it to someone with a love for old school arcade games, or introduce it to your kids as a way for them to explore the wonderful world of arcade gameplay for the first time. Plus, it’s the perfect way to get the whole family engaged in some fun together once the gifts are unwrapped on Christmas Day.

Of course, it wouldn’t hurt to pick up one of Mariah Carey’s Merry Christmas albums on CD or vinyl too, to get you in the holiday spirit this season!

Ellen’s Pick

The official ‘Ellen’s List’ is out, and there’s one particular gift that made the cut and caught our eye: the Nintendo Switch Lite. No surprise this made the list, as it makes a great gift, especially for kids and teens. In fact, Ellen called it “the hottest toy of the year.” This new small, light version of the Nintendo Switch system has been optimized for handheld play. It’s also compatible with the popular Nintendo Switch games, like Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and more. They’re sure to keep the kids occupied for hours on road trips or anywhere else!

Jessica Simpson’s Pick

As you may have already learned in our blog on the resurging trend of film photography, film cameras have become a hot item once again. And not just with those who have used film before. A whole new generation is now exploring film photography for the very first time! That’s why it makes perfect sense that Jessica Simpson would pick the Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera, when she shared her favourite holiday gifts with People Magazine.

“We love all kinds of photography in our house! I can’t get enough of this precious time with my three kids without documenting everything. Capture memories in the moment and give friends an artistic keepsake. This camera is also fun for kids to use and create cool collages.”

Know someone who already has an Instax Mini camera? Fujifilm’s themed film (like Star Wars and Frozen 2) make great stocking stuffers, as does a stylish Instax Mini camera case or a cute little Instax Mini Album to store their snapshots.

Christina Milian’s Picks

The Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera clearly is one of the hottest holiday gift ideas for 2019! Not only did it make Jessica Simpson’s top picks, but singer (and actress – have you watched Falling Inn Love yet?) Christina Milian shortlisted the fun instant film camera on her holiday gift guide with E! News. She also featured another hot item on her list – Apple Air Pods. These are a must-have for any techies, or really anyone with a compatible Apple device (think: iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad or Mac). They deliver a fully wireless headphone experience and include a handy charging case, so they’re always ready to use. They’re automatically on and always connected, so you can change a song, make a call or even make a request from Siri on the fly.

Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka’s Picks

When it comes to the holidays, actor Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka are known for going all-out. Their home is immaculately decorated, and they’ve become experts in holiday entertaining. With two 9-year-old twins, they also now have a pretty good knack for finding the perfect gifts for kids. In their 2019 holiday gift guide, the couple named Squishmallows stuffies and The Lego Movie 2 – Benny’s Space Squad set as must-have gift items. Apparently, both their kids will be getting Lego this year, according to David and Neil’s holiday Q&A in People Magazine!

Jillian Harris’ Picks

Local celebrity Jillian Harris, co-host of HGTV Canada’s “Love It or List It Vancouver”, and former Bachelorette, has shown time and time again that she can curate the best of the best in her annual holiday gift guides. This year, her ‘Gift Guide for Him’ included some of her husband Justin Pasutto’s favourite things. He earmarked both the Apple Watch and Apple Air Pods as his top tech picks. Showing up in several holiday gift guides, it’s safe to say Air Pods will be one of the most popular items gifted this season. Apple Watches also make a great gift, with various models and price points to choose from. The newest model, Series 5, comes with both GPS and Cellular capabilities, so you can stay connected with just your watch. It’s also swimproof, has an always-on retina display, and Emergency SOS among other handy features. If they already have an Apple Watch, accessories like these Spigen Rugged Armor cases, or style-conscious Apple Watch Straps would also be a smart gift idea.

 

We hope some of these celebrity-approved holiday gifts ideas will help you finish off your holiday shopping! Need your gifts delivered extra quick?

Mommy Outside the Box’s Gift Ideas for the Hard-to-Buy-For

Stumped on what to give the hardest-to-buy-for people on your holiday shopping list? Shayna from Mommy Outside the Box has lots of creative ideas. All you’ll need is some photos and a little help from our London Drugs Photolab!

Photo credit: Mommy Outside the Box

There is snow on the ground (at least where I am). The tree is up. Holiday music is playing in the grocery store. Our local tree lighting ceremony is this week. I do believe the holidays are upon us! Just like every year, I feel like that sort of snuck up on me. Wasn’t I just carving pumpkins? But here we are and it’s time to get into the holiday spirit. It’s a busy time of year that’s for sure. There’s baking to do. Decorations to put up. Gatherings to attend. And gifts to buy.

I love giving gifts! There is so much joy in finding the perfect gift for those special people in your life. It’s just not always easy to know what that perfect gift is. I’m sure we all have at least one person on our list that is a little difficult to know what to get. I know when I’m stuck on ideas for people close to me I try to come up with something a little more personal to give them.

Gifts to Cherish

We all have memories that we cherish and we are making more all the time. I bet you can pull up your phone right now and scroll through your camera roll and find a lot of pictures that make you stop and smile. I bet they would make other people smile too. There’s nothing better than sharing a smile. And that’s so easy to do with photo gifts. I love it when I’m unpacking my Christmas decorations to put up, and come across the photo ornaments that I’ve been given in the past. Those always get a special place on my tree or on mantle and they bring me joy throughout the holiday season.

We are already into December but, luckily, it’s not too late to check off that Christmas list and order some precious photo gifts from the LDPhotolab! They have so many options – from holiday cards to beautiful ornaments and everything in between, it’s easy to find that perfect gift to add a photo to and share a smile.

I just placed an order myself so I could share some ideas with you. Photo gifts are so easy to order from London Drugs. You can upload your photos and order your gifts from your computer, at a kiosk in store or make it super easy and download the London Drugs Photolab App on your iOS or Android device!

Greetings Cards – Order by December 17

Photo credit: Mommy Outside the Box

I love getting actual Christmas cards in the mail! And I imagine others do as well so I try to send out at least a few every year. I had some lovely photos from a family shoot that my daughter and I had done earlier this fall and I knew I wanted to include one of those pictures in our cards this year. And rather than send cards with a picture tucked inside it just made more sense to put our photo right on the card. You will find a large selection of layouts and styles online to make your card perfect!

Personalized Ornaments – Order by December 17

I have a small collection of personalized ornaments and they are by far my favorite! I also give them every year. Ornaments with my always growing daughter make the perfect gift for her grandparents! The LDPhotolab has a ton of styles and finishes for ornaments. You can order them in metal, crystal, ceramic and even wood.

This crystal ornament that I ordered with a picture of my daughter and one of her best friends is my new favorite. These girls are so adorable and the ornament is so beautiful! It’s really hard to capture how lovely it really is in a photo. The colors are so vibrant.

Photo credit: Mommy Outside the Box

So, I actually didn’t mean to put my own face on this wooden ornament. It was supposed to be a picture of my daughter but the mix up was completely user error on my part! I just might just hold on to this one for a while and gift it to my daughter when she’s older and is putting up a tree of her own. Maybe then she can remember when her mom wasn’t quite so old! But, mistake or not, I do love how this wooden ornament turned out. I’m a sucker for anything with a “rustic” look and feel and that’s exactly how this turned out, especially with the black and white photo.

Pet Tags – Order by December 17

My daughter and I have three adorable cats. I mean they are a lot of trouble, but they are so stinking cute! Now our cats hate collars so there is no way they are going to wear pet tags but I knew my daughter would love this keepsake and I will be ordering more with pictures of her other two cats. These are things she will always cherish.

Fine Art Prints

Special gifts are awesome but sometimes a simple picture really does say a thousand words. This particular picture is tied a very specific and important memory and event in my life and I really wanted to get it printed as a reminder of where I was and where I am. There are lots of print options at the LD Photolab. You can get your standard prints in glossy or pearl or you can also try out some of their fine art paper like Bamboo, Baryta and Kauai. I had this picture printed on Kauai paper and I absolutely love how it turned out. This is such an easy way to make your favorite photos just a little more special. Both the Baryta and Kauai paper are a smooth cotton and they completely change the look and feel of your photos.

And Many More

This is just a small sampling of the unique and creative photo gifts you can order from London Drugs. Here are a few other ideas that caught my eye:

  • Photo calendars – wall calendars or desktop in a variety of sizes.
  • Photo books always make a lovely gift. The LDPhotolab has a variety of beautiful and creative photo books to choose from.
  • Canvas gallery wraps come in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit any space and are such a beautiful way to showcase photos.
  • Photo mugs are another great choice for the tea or coffee drinker on your list.

There are just so many ideas that it would be impossible for me to write about them all in this post. You really should head over to the website and check them out yourself! You still have time to order and have your gifts in hand before Christmas. You can check out the holiday ordering cutoff dates here.

 

A $100 gift card to London Drugs sure would help you get a headstart on your own personalized holiday gifts, wouldn’t it? Check out Mommy Outside the Box’s blog post here to see how you can enter for a chance to win one!

2017 Holiday Gift Guide for DIYers

It’s less than a month until Christmas. Still working on your holiday shopping? We’ve got you covered!

Leading up to December 25, we’re posting holiday gift guides for everyone on your list. We have already shared guides for the home cook, kids (and parents), and techies. Today’s guide is all about the DIYer!

What do you get for someone who likes to make things? Buying a scarf for a knitter or a nice planter for someone who works with ceramics can seem a waste. Instead, give them what they love best—tools or supplies to make something themselves!

Here’s our guide to buying a cool crafty present for the DIYer on your list.

1. Build their Tool Box

 

 

DIYers love new tools. Not only will they expand their range of projects, but new tools are sometimes just inspiring in and of themselves—opening up a whole new world of possibilities.

DIY Gift Guide

Help the DIYers in your life build their ultimate tool box with a glue gun, an X-Acto knife, and a screwdriver with multiple bits. These long nose pliers are perfect for making jewelry, and a tape measure will be useful no matter the project. An adjustable wrench means they’ve always got the right size. Scissors are necessary for just about any DIY project. And a multitool means they can carry it all with them and be ready for anything.

2. Grow their Garden

 

 

It’s not really the right season for gardening, but don’t let that stop you. There are plenty of great presents for DIY plant lovers that you can still find at this time of year, like garden gloves and a gorgeous green watering can. They’ll be great in the spring for outdoor use, but they can be used with indoor plants as well.

DIY Gift Guide

We’ve got plenty of great planters that will look lovely on a beautiful plant stand. And this Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners hand soap and hand cream duo will remind your DIYer that you care about them and their well being. No cracked skin here!

3. Sew So Well

 

 

Sewing is such a handy skill. Sewers can make clothes, create curtains, upgrade their bed with a new duvet cover, mend fabric, fashion their own duffle bags and totes–the list is almost unending. It’s perfect for upgrading one’s home or wardrobe with big or small projects and is a life skill that everyone should have.

https://www.londondrugs.com/home-and-lifestyle/appliances/small-appliances/irons-garment-steamers-and-sewing-machines/sewing-machines-and-attachments/

Make sewing easier for your DIY friend with a new sewing machine. If they’ve already got one they love, then think about supplemental sewing tools like a new iron, fabric scissors, a seam ripper, or a hand sewing kit.

4. Perfect Preserving

 

 

Who doesn’t love some delicious homemade jellies and jams? You can certainly make some yourself for excellent Christmas gifts (check out our guide to canning and preserving for tips and recipes!), but for the DIYer on your list, you’ll want to be giving them supplies.

DIY Gift Guide

A canning kit complete with a funnel, jar lifter and lid lifter, as well as glass canning jars and lids, is a great gift for someone who’s looking to expand their DIY ways into food preservation (it’s a special order item, so be sure to get this one early!). It’s not just for jam; canning is perfect for pickling too! Preserving food via canning is both a science and an art, which is just what crafty folks love.

For more gift-giving advice for the DIYer on your list, speak to an LD Expert today. To make a purchase, visit London Drugs in-store and online. We’ll be back in a few days with a gift guide for music lovers. See you then!
